The consequences of the bloody brawl that got both Isaiah Stewart and LeBron James suspended still haunt the Lakers’ fans. As the Detroit Pistons faced the Lakers for the first time since the brawl, things got a little too heated at Staples Center.

The players might forget but the crowd never forgets – as fans continued to boo Isaiah Stewart repeatedly. The infamous brawl was coincidentally close to the anniversary of the famous Malice at the Palace.

However, the Lakers fans ensured that they let the Pistons players, especially Stewart know who’s home the Staples Center is.

The Lakers have had an average performance, up to this point. With the constant back and forth of baskets, the game has been neck to neck. Going into halftime, the Lakers Big Three has carried the offense for the team.

Around 20 minutes into game time, no one from the bench except Wayne Ellington contributed to the scoreboard. Following a few games where the team has struggled with chemistry, the Lakers are finally looking to return to a .500 record today.
